Poster Title

Beam Line Optics for 2.5 MeV Van de Graaff Particle Accelerator

Institution

Western Kentucky University

Abstract

The 2.5-MeV Van de Graaff particle accelerator with several ion beam lines for materialoriented research, analytical material science and teaching is under construction at WKU’s Applied Physics Institute. The beam of charge particles generated by accelerator will be transported toward different experimental stations. Bending and switching magnet systems for the main beam line of the accelerator facility have been designed. The 0.5- Tesla electromagnet will bend a beam up to 90˚ from the beam axis. The Lorentz force governs the charge particle’s circular orbit in a uniform magnetic field and allows direct control of the beam direction by variation of the magnetic field strength. The poster will describe the accelerator design, the beam line architecture, and beam optics. Details of the switching/bending electromagnet system will be discussed.
